Last night when I went to bed I could see the cloud from the fire glowing orange on the horizon…either the fire or the firefighter’s lights illuminating the smoke. The fire burned its way to the coast overnight through the mountains. It is now 10 percent contained, and that 10 percent is on the side threatening the homes.
The wind here as remained light so far this morning which is good news.
Found this map showing satellite heat readings over an image of the region:
The green triangle is where it started yesterday morning. The yellow circles are heat detections that have cooled some, so the fire is going out there. The red are new hot spots. I live along the highway in the upper right corner of the map. You can get a sense of the rugged terrain the fire is moving through.
